There is nothing quite as painful as having a cavity. Cavities, also known as dental caries, can bring sharp, stabbing, shooting pain to announce their presence. However, you do not have to suffer needlessly from tooth decay.
What Causes Tooth Decay?
Several different things can lead to tooth decay. The main cause of tooth decay is failing to practice good oral hygiene. There are several things that you should be doing to take proper care of your teeth and avoid poor oral habits. Brushing twice every day is the foremost step, as healthy teeth get their start – and their finish – by your bathroom sink. You can brush your teeth either immediately after waking up and before going to bed, or you can brush them right after your first and last meals for the day.
Make sure to use the proper toothbrush for your sensitivity, and a paste that comes recommended by us! You will want to reach for a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste, as that can help facilitate remineralization of your teeth and lower your risk of cavities.
